Updated class material VIR-304

Dear future colleagues, 

I have updated my vaccines and vaccination against virus infections lecture. Please, find it in the class materials link. There is a lot of information in the lecture that is related to COVID-19 vaccines, that particular material is for your information only. You will find that it can explain a lot of questions that you, or others, may have. However, the basic concepts describing vaccine production platforms are required.

Email me if you have questions or comments.

Stay safe, keep other safe.
